We’ve all been stuck at home for over two whole months now. Gyms are closed are we’ve been getting unhealthier with time since we’ve given up on any physical activity and exercise. Gone are the days when we waited for our trainers to beat us to a pulp with strenuous workouts.
But as with everything in life, we must move forward and learn to cope with the situation. And who said just because we’re cooped up at home, we’ve got to forego our workout plans and forget about all those routine definitions. Why not work out at home your home into a gym?
Of course, you can purchase all those expensive and so-called best workout apps, but guess what? Just get on Rizzle and explore easy workouts by experts and novices like you, all explained and demonstrated in under a minute!
